Hey lovelies!! I truly hope you had a wonderful weekend! For those of you who are mothers, I hope your Mother’s Day was special in some or many ways!

Your eyes are not deceiving you my dears. Today’s post features someone very special, my momma!! With the news about my sister’s death (my dad’s daughter), I was a bit too out of it to create the post I had in mind before Mother’s Day arrive, but when I saw her strutting her stuff (she’s always strutting lol) on Sunday, I knew I had to make today’s style post about her!

I love this dress on my mom, or Momma Jackie, as most of friends call her (and y’all are my friends)! A woman can really do no wrong in a great wrap dress, and while I don’t currently own one (putting it on my shopping list), it is a MUST!

Bracelets: Unknown; Ring (top picture): Unknown- Stein Mart; Ring (bottom picture): Forever 21

When I saw my mom’s shoes on Sunday, I became smitten! I asked her why she didn’t buy me a pair, and she said it was because they didn’t have my size, which means I almost had them in my possession…darn it! Lol I love that I have a momma who wears and would randomly buy me fabulous shoes :-).

Dress: Maggie Boutique- Stein Mart (similar); Necklace- Stein Mart; Shoes: Jessica Simpson– Marshall’s; Sunglasses: Old Navy

I told y’all before, in this post, how much I love my mom!  I am a momma’s girl like no other! My mom is my friend, biggest cheerleader, counselor, and so much more.  She is strong, beautiful, God-fearing, nurturing, confident, and divine. When I have to think of one word to describe my mom, the only thing I can think of is EVERYTHING!  I wish everyone could be so fortunate to have a mom as amazing as mine :-).


P.S. Thank you your kind words of condolence upon learning about the death of my sister in last week’s SMILE post; it really means to me!

  • This is without a doubt the sweetest thing I’ve read today. Your mum is so fantastically stylish. I too am smitten with those shoes, and her ring is amazing too. I hope she had a sensational Mother’s Day.

  • You and your mom have the same smile! I agree she is working it in that wrap dress and heels, very nice. I am sorry to hear about your sister, *big hug*

  • Hi Momma Jackie… I see you strutting your stuff looking all fly. Her calling me on Mother’s day was a total surprise and really did make my day … woohoo

    Oh..you know I just LOVE this post about momma! She is such a beautiful person inside and out. Like mother, like daughter!I Love her!

  • A woman can do no wrong in a great wrap dress. So true! Thank goodness for Diane von Furstenberg. It really is the most flattering style for every figure with good coverage, appropriate for office or social events. Have you heard of Karina Dresses? She is from Brooklyn and has the most amazing selection of one-of-a-kind wrap dresses for sizes 0-20.

  • R, I’m so sorry to hear about your sister. Somehow I missed that in my blog reading last week. My heart is with you. Also, my first though when I looked at these photos of your mom was, “Did she seriously cut off all her hair?!” I’m sure you get that a lot, but you look just like your mom. Which in this case is a good thing! You also have her fabulous taste in shoes!
